Seiko Men's Analogue Automatic Watch with Textile Strap – SNK805K2
About this deal
Since then, the Grand Seiko catalog continues to grow with new releases every season, yet the SBGA211 Snowflake model remains alluring to many Grand Seiko enthusiasts.
The 30m water resistance rating means you shouldn't take your SNK for a swim, but it should be ok if you drop it in a puddle for a second or two. Keep an eye out for the special editions, which feature unique dials in gorgeous colors and designs. For the most part, the latter is the same as the others but is equipped with more jewels, a hacking lever, and a hand-winding bridge, unlocking those additional capabilities.
For context, the SNK fits me the best, followed by the SRPG, which I can just about get away with, though it is a little floaty for reasons I shall mention later. The Mechanical, however, brought something that makes us watch geeks salivate: a manual wind movement. Grand Seiko is not a single piece or watch model; rather, it is a product line that can feature Zaratsu polishing, textured dials, Spring Drive movements, and an outrageously high level of craftsmanship.
Our number one goal is to make you so satisfied with your purchase that we get the honour of helping you with your next watch purchase.The qualities that give it such a straightforward appearance are a nod to the watch’s military roots, but they’re also a great opportunity for Seiko to show off its ability to build an insanely high-quality watch and sell it for peanuts.
While still easily purchased online along with other inexpensive Seiko watches of recent decades, it appears that the collection is no longer produced. The finish on the dial compliments the tool-like aspect of the watch while also matching the matte case. There’s also no screw-down functionality here, which limits water resistance to only 30 meters, so the watch will be fine in the rain but should stay out of the pool.Putting it aside earlier this year turned out to be a pretty decision in the end because something else entered the fray. After a few days of wear, it becomes softer and more comfortable, but it’s worth looking at an affordable replacement.
